    Clinical child psychologist. What could be better? A career which values being childish--now and then.

    "play with chemicals"

    I am a Technician at a Pharmaceutical co. A Chemical Engineer (who was also a guitar player) told me that, after explaining a chemical process, "thats why I am an Engineer, and you play with chemicals". Guess who is still playing with chemicals for 26 yrs.
    In my spare time, I play guitar, listen to music, collect vinyl records, and read music related books & magazines.

    Let's make it three in a row!

    I have dedicated nearly 20 years of my life to service with the New York State Police. 11 years in uniform(over 8 as a K-9 handler) and the last 8 as an Investigator. I'll have 20 in September of 2007. I could retire at 42.......but I won't. Good luck to the two before me. It goes by real fast!!! Be safe...

    Like some others, I may have responded to this in the past, but I'm too busy with the Buttercaster Project to check. ;)

    I've been teaching HS science in Eastern Iowa for 32 years...6 years less then I have played guitar. Started out as a physicist but have more or less converted to Dirt & Rocks 101 (Earth Science.)

    Also do the district's IT stuff... 4 buildings, 600 kids, 80 adults, lots of servers, and lots of computers.

    More fun than a barrel of monkeys.

    Still don't know what I am going to do when I grow up, but I bet it will have something to do with guitars.

    I'm the pastor of two small United Methodist Churches, and being a musician is a significant part of how I do my job.
